Convenient location in town right across from the pier, good place to grab a few drinks and watch whatever game(s)/sporting events are on the TVs. Friendly staff, reasonable drink prices.

A very convenient place right next to the ferry station. The food is the best continental food that I've been eating. Damien, the owner, is welcoming and friendly. And you can rent bikes and you will need them trust me. Go there

Excellent food I have had a few meals here now and all have been top notch defiantly recommend it if you are looking for a break from Thai food (they do Thai food also). All the staff are friendly and helpful . Nice and clean with pool table and nice cold beers defiantly work dropping into.

Clearly they were understaffed the night I went - 20 minutes to get a drink! Food was very mixed - excellent satay, so-so garlic mushrooms. But the 3 for 2 banana daiquiris were very good...
